Blue rush



waves curl in blue rush
rhythm of sea, crushed cubes in
raspberry cocktail   

~0~0

blue is the morning
sky above coconut trees,  
seaweeds tangling shoe

~0~0

she wears a green dress,
white hat for St. Patrick's dance,
winter blues fading


Posted for Haiku Heights:   Prompt is Blue and Haiku My Heart
Happy St. Patrick's Day to those who celebrate it.
